The Partridge, Partridge Green

Excellent freshly prepared food in a friendly refurbished village pub - the homemade closelaw alone is worth the trip!
Wonderfully kept London Pride plus the usual array of lagers.
Outside seating and grassed 'dog free' secure garden with play equipment.
Popular with walkers, cyclists, dog walkers and those who live in the village

The Griffin, Godshill

Excellent family pub with large childrens play area and even its own maze in the shape of what else a Griffin. Unlike the previous reviewer my steak pie and chips was delicious and certainly hadnt seen a microwave

O'Neills, Sutton Coldfield

Decent town centre pub with the usual 'O Neills' fake irish atmosphere, that said its clean and spacious. One word of warning its 21 stairs to the the basement bar so not suitable for the disabled

The Amington Inn, Tamworth

Now refurbished as an Indian restaurant with bar!

The Tavern in the Town, Tamworth

Allways getting police raided - a bit of a thugs pub

The Wolferstan Arms, Shuttington

Now operated by Marstons Inns and Taverns the Wolferstan Arms (aka The Knob) has been refurbished and whilst the food service area has been extended, the bar has been removed and there is now no area in which you can just enjoy a drink, at the time of writing this the pub is still advertising for a chef and other catering staff and therefor I have not yet sampled the new Wolfrestan Arms

The Dodford Inn, Dodford

Now Closed but local campaigners are trying to save it from redeveloping as houses and have offered �500,000 to but the pub for the village

The Merchant Stores, Birmingham

Re-named, closed, re-named and closed again - last time I past it was open but only at weekends and it had changed it name again.

The Brasshouse, Birmingham

I have druunk and eaten in this pub on a virtually daily basis over the past seven years. I have never experienced any problems whatsoever with either the staff or management. The Brasshouse is one of the few upmarket pubs on Broad Street and whilst it doesn't tolerate bad behaviour or drunken louts it is a great place for a quiet and civilised drink and something to eat

The Dodford Inn, Dodford

Save Investments who own this pub have announced that it will close in mid January 2007 and be demolished to be replaced with a development of bungalows. Bromsgrove District council have so far refused planning permission for the proposed re-development but Save Investments have decided to go ahead with the pub closure and site redevelopment. anther British village pub looks set to bite the dust - shame

The Tame Otter, Tamworth

Lots of nooks and crannies in this friendly and often very busy village pub that dates back to the 1700's. Now refurbished in modern 'olde worlde' style with lots of beams and a couple of open fires. well kept beers including old Speckled and Pedigree - Hot tasty and reasonably priced food, (the cod in beer batter is huge and mout watering), however one downside is that on my last couple of visits some dishes had run out fairly early in the evening. All main credit cards accepted, huge car park and canalside garden

The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham

Gone are the days when you got glared at if you ventured over the thrreshold in anything other than a suit, now whilst most of the clientle are business types you do get people in jeans and tes shirts, although a brass plaque on the door does forbid hats or football shirts.
Unlike other reviewers, I found the staff to be pleasent enough and service was fine even on a busy lunchtime. Food is pricey and the fact that a portion of Coleslaw for your burger is not free but costs a whopping �1.50 extra did niggle me a bit.
Well kept beers served from a central bar - not very disabled friendly though as enterance to the pub is up three steps

The George and Dragon, Orlando

On International Drive and owned by people from Stoke on Trent, friendly and busy but when I visited strangely most of the customers were Americans.

The Kings Head, Lichfield

Nice cosy pub with a fantastic history dating well past the English Civil War and 2 resident ghosts. Well kept ales, friendly staff and good menu with filled baguettes, home made pies and superb fish & chips.

Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Nottingham

Touristy pub set into caves under Nottingham Castle, complete supposedly with its own ghost. Service can be slow even during 'quiet times' (when I visited on a lunchtime in September and there was one person dealing with food orders as well as trying to se serve drinks).
Even at a weekday lunchtime some of the menu options had sold out and the veggie options got muddled up with the dish including meat! The young waitress was very apologetic though even more so when she realised they had run out of vinegar! That said once sorted out the food was tasty and worth the 40 minute wait.
This is one pub not suitable for the disabled due to its narrow passageways and outdoor loos.

Felix Holt, Nuneaton

A typically uninspiring Weatherspoons pub. Beers and lagers are well kept but the food is pretty dire even for a Weatherspoons pub! Cod & Chips looked as though the cat had played with it and the filled baguettes were like chewing an old training shoe. Having said that service was friendly and staff were quick clear away glasses and dirty plates

The Tweedale Arms Hotel, Tamworth

This pub has now been taken over by Punch Taverns - nothing much seems to have changed yet though

The Globe Inn, Tamworth

Redeveloped in the 1990's after being boarded up for years, the pub has beern restored to its former glory so that means lots of dark wood and brass, having said that the beers are average and the food most definately 'boil in the bag' average.

The Tweedale Arms Hotel, Tamworth

Large well kept pub opposite the railway station and a five minute walk to the town centre.
Modern furnishings and seperate resturant offering a wide range of food including steaks and roasts. Friendly service and well kept beers. fruit machines and newspapers. Car park and limited outside seating.
Accomodation available.

The St Aubyns Arms, Praze

I understand that the pub has now been sold and don't know exactly what if any changes have been made

18 Feb 2006 10:04

The Royal Oak, Kingsbury

From the outside this is a rather ugly looking building but once inside its all dark wood exposed beams and open fire. The split level pub has seating a couple of steps above the bar. Extensive menu including children's specials. The Steak & Guiness Pie was obviously home made and was very resonably priced at �5.95. The Martsons beers are all well kept and the young staff are friendly and attentive. The pub offers fruit machines and childrens playground as well as a large beer garden and car park. f you want to leave the car at home the Birmingham - Tamworth bus route passes right by the pub

18 Feb 2006 10:01

The Albert Hotel, Tamworth

A new landlord has taken over this cosy pub close to the town centre and railway station. Well kept Bank's ales and extensive reasonably priced menu including homemade steak and ale pie (which was absolutely stuffed with chunks of steak)as well as daily specials including beef madras and cumberland sausage. All food is delicious and freshly prepared.
Pub offers pool, fruit machines and juke box. Beer garden and car park as well as accomodation. Staff are friendly and attentive. The Albion is one of the few 'real' pubs in the town

18 Feb 2006 09:52

The Mermaid Inn, Porth

This pub sells itself as 'the pub on the beach' and it virtually is. Large patio with lots of tables overlooking Porth Beach. Wide range of modestly priced food. This pub is the only one I have come across with not only a fruit machine but its own amusement arcade. Well kept beers including Doom Bar. friendly fast service and families welcome.
